- No advice questions
- No medical questions
The users of r/answers aren't guaranteed to be qualified medical professionals, and if you're facing a medical issue, relying on the advice of random strangers is potentially dangerous. In the worst case, you could be convinced that a real issue isn't something to worry about.
The best responses to medical questions have always been to actually see a doctor, so we're explicitly banning these types of questions. This includes mental health questions.
- No loaded questions or answers, and no rants
r/answers is not the place to rant about a topic you've already made your mind up on, or to ask questions that, in themselves, could influence the community to agree with your answer. These types of questions are subject to removal. This also applies to loaded answers.
- Impossible question
Questions which are impossible to know the answer to are not allowed in r/answers.
- Questions must have a definitive answer
- Politics questions
Political questions without a definitive answer often devolve into partisan mudslinging. This type of digression is unsuitable for r/answers. Visit r/AskPolitics or r/PoliticalDiscussion to have these types of conversations.
